I just had to be out there today. The birds were gobbling on the opposite side of the large clear hollow I have been hunting. I learned a valuable lesson this morning. A wingbone and kees, and really fire up gobblers, and doing a gobbler yelp on the right box call can make every bird curious. LOL two calls I never really use in the spring, but will have to utilize more of. The wingbone I was using was given to me by JMBear at the auction from Rick Harro and was made by Lee Bowles. Love that call and it means a lot to me.
They gobbled pretty decent on the roost, then shut up when they hit the ground. I did some kees, and they were fired up good. I did a few gobbler yelps and watched a bird come from about 400 yards out on the opposite ridge, come in to the bottom. I think it was a jake or gobbler but can not confirm or deny. Was nice to sit back and watch turkeys be turkeys. Even though my season was done on May 16th, it is still just a sad day. Nothing like the spring turkey woods.
